The Silver cord takes the reader on a journey to another realm, where the protagonist, Tasi, must fight to save humanity from the grasp of an evil that wishes to take over, in order to control what they most desperately want, 5 senses. This graphic novel creates a whole new perspective and gives life to the idea of a war between humans, angels and robots. This book is not only a page turner, its art is absolutely gorgeous. Each page is filled with drawn pictures that give the reader a visual insight to what the characters are seeing and experiencing. These pictures tell the story of a girl who is coming of age, and trying to find herself amongst all the chaos echoing around her. It tells the message that even if you feel insignificant, you may actually be the most important person in the world. It also speaks to the dangers of the ever advancing technology, and how as a world we better watch out, because a war could be beginning and we might be left in the dark.
From the second I got this book I was thrilled! Normally I do not go for the graphic novels, but I thought I would give it a try, and it is safe to say I will be picking more up. This book’s pictures were absolutely gorgeous, and the story brought me on a thrill ride, where i could not stop reading, even when I knew I had to go to bed. This book is the book that MUST be read in one sitting, otherwise you might go crazy not knowing what happens next. The time it took to create this book was astounding, 10 years, that is dedication. But as evident the end result was worth it. I highly recommend this book for people looking for a something new to brighten and liven up the day!
